The International Workshop on AI for Privacy and Security
PrAISe 2016

to be held with ECAI 2016 (
29 August - 2 September, 2016. The Hague, Holland


Research in security and privacy is nowadays one of the hottest topics in computer science. This is because these topics are of capital importance to the development of a sustainable, resilient and prosperous cyber world. This includes protecting crucial assets ranging from Critical Infrastructures to individual's Personal Information, and it spans domains like Cloud computing, Social Computing, Electronic Commerce and many more. Approaches that are intelligent and self-adaptable are required to deal with the complexities of effectively protecting these crucial assets in all these domains. This is where research from the AI community can make a difference in security and privacy. Indeed, these two areas are increasingly receiving more and more attention from the AI community.

The focus of the International Workshop on AI for Privacy and Security (PrAISe) is to provide a forum to discuss and advance security and privacy by means of *AI approaches*. Specific topics for this workshop include but are not limited to:
* Cloud Computing Security and Privacy
* Social Software / Social Computing Security and Privacy

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers from the Program Committee. Criteria for the selection of papers will include: high quality, clear presentation, novelty of research, relevance to the topics and taking an AI-based approach, coverage of relevant state of the art and the relevance to security and privacy problems.

Submissions must follow ACM format and can be of two types:

- Full Papers (maximum of 8 pages) about completed work or work in progress.
- Position Papers (2-4 pages) reporting views or ambitions, or describing problems.

Papers must be submitted in pdf format via the conference management system, available at:


Workshop proceedings will be published by ACM, in its prestigious International Conference Proceedings Series with ISBN.

We are also exploring the possibility of a follow-up special issue in a top-tier journal (currently under negotiation).
